    Is queuing a thing of the past?

    I think the main worry is getting a decent seat in the bar or getting food. We've just been to Spain on the PA with a campervan, so height plays a part, we've been in one of the last queues boarding but amongst the first off, you lose some you win some.

    HONFLEUR - Arriving June 2019

    Basically that is what she is.

    New deposit price on bookings?

    In the past we cancelled last minute, travelling with a group and some got nervous of the weekend forecast. Phoned in the morning and rebooked a couple of weeks later, paid the fee for changing and had a refund as the second sailing was cheaper.

    New deposit price on bookings?

    I'm a member of Caravan and Motorhome Club, as I expect a lot on here are, they charge no deposit, so as soon as bookings open for the popular sites they are fully booked for every weekend until the Tuesday before when you can cancel with no penalty. There are a lot of comments online about how unfair it is, but the club don't see a problem as they always sell the pitches at the last minute.

    Plymouth Traffic

    Outland rd is okay on a Sunday afternoon but not at 4.30 on a Thursday when you get in from Spain.

    Cork to Santander Route to Launch in 2018

    Spoke to some Irish bikers in Spain this week, they were happy with it, they knew what they were getting and it's better than the alternative via the UK.

    That's why when they get on the ferry the teachers head for the bar and let the kids get on with it.

    Fleet Renewal - Second E-Flexer Confirmed

    The nearby village is certainly Fisterra but they seem to use Finisterre for the whole area. I've been looking closely as hoping to visit the area next month.

    Fleet Renewal - Second E-Flexer Confirmed

    From pictures I've seen the cruise ships moor on the Cobh side of the harbour, not at the ferry terminal.

    Annoying music on Armorique

    I think the music is only in the bar area, it can get annoying after a while.

    Barfleur kiosk cafe

    Yes forward on deck 6, with reserved seating around the outside of the main seating area.

    Cork to Santander Route to Launch in 2018

    But would it be the Dockers that would cause any problems, more likely to be BF unions demonstrating. As said earlier would the unions really be that short sighted not to back BF in starting the venture, if it's a success in the future and French crews are not brought in then they would have a case.

    Pont Aven 20/04/2018

    Can understand you being upset. It's the one problem with the Thursday night sailing, if there's bad weather coming back from Spain the early boarding and relaxed meal on board is lost. The being told to leave the cabins early on this crossing is not really necessary, as she doesn't sail until the evening, the only reason can be to get the crew change done as early as possible.

    Poole Harbour Developmement

    But PA has to do Ireland as well. Going back to the old timetable would perfect.
